A closer look at clinical programs, internships and other practical experiences
Experiential learning is a formative part of your ANU Law degree. In addition to internships and clinical programs, many students hone their practical legal skills through casual work as a paralegal or clerkships on the side of their studies. These opportunities can be undertaken in Canberra, interstate and even internationally.
So, where do you start when considering what placement is the best fit for you? What skills can you expect to gain? And are virtual internships just a fad in the pandemic age, or are they here to stay as an equitable alternative?
Watch our panel discussion featuring ANU College of Law students who share their experiences and advice on applying your legal skills in a practical setting.
